Why Won't Democrats Describe This Terrorist As A Terrorist?

Not only are Democrats defending America's enemies, some are even refusing to call a ruthless, murderous terrorist exactly that.

While questioning Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) Sunday night in Iowa, CBS This Morning reporter Ed O'Keefe asked the Democratic presidential candidate point blank if Iranian General Qasem Soleimani was a terrorist. Warren, of course, ducked the question and refused to use the word "terrorist" when referring to Soleimani, calling him a "senior government official." She also made sure to bring up impeachment.

Warren said, "He is a senior government official. Here's the thing, we have known about him for a very long time. Why didn't this happen a month ago? Why didn't it happen a month from now? Why right now as Donald Trump faces a potential impeachment trial in the United States Senate?"
